Questions & Answers

What’s the sound DB of the 5000-5500W

Trying to find out how loud they are and I cannot find anything online for the sound decibels
Asked by: Jlp
I don't own a, SPL meter, but this unit is very loud. Much louder than a lawnmower, it's probably illegal to work around this thing without earplugs. Don't even think about using it for tailgating; if you have neighbors they will hate you for using it; and unless you can put it a looooong way from your house, you will have trouble sleeping.

is there a natural gas kit for this model ? Where can I get one?
Asked by: shorty
Yes, It's made by US Carburetion and it's a tri-fuel retrofit called a motor snorkel conversion kit.. You can run the generator on gasoline, propane or natural gas after retrofitting. You can find it here: https://www.motorsnorkel.com/
